6-day Super Bassert to conclude the supercar season

As revealed by Motorsport.comThe 6-day Super Bathurst combines elements from both Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst International.

This combination was the result of the COVID-19 outbreak in New South Wales, rushing to plan a separate event in November.

Super Bassert will take over effectively Cancel Gold Coast 500 Dates, Begins Tuesday, November 30th and ends at Bathurst 1000 on December 5th.

A spectacular undercard including Super2, TCR Australia, S5000, Carrera Cup, GT World Challenge Australia, Touring Car Masters, Trans Am, SuperUtes and Toyota86s will take place over 6 days.

By that time, New South Wales is expected to reach a sufficient immunization rate and allow spectators to pass through the gate.

However, interstate visits may be restricted and Queensland-based teams may require quarantine or quarantine to return after the event.

A joint bid between TLA Worldwide and ARG was held by a supercar and an Australian racing group joining forces. Everything except it’s lit green to buy a supercar from Archer Capital..

“I want to thank you [Bathurst] Mayor [Ian] Rob Cameron of Repco, North and John McMelan of ARG have worked together over the past few weeks to put together what is known as the best Repco Bathurst 1000 ever, “said Sean Seamer, CEO of Supercars. increase.

“It was a tough year for motorsport fans, but I’m sure this is the best end-of-life recipe for the 2021 season.”

ARG Chairman John McMelan said:

“We need to reflect our passion for sports and recognize the role each sponsor has played in achieving this.

“This event will be a great opportunity to camp in the fresh country air of Bassert while captivating the family and enjoying truly dynamic motorsport.”

Given that retail rivals Repco and Supercheap Auto are the title sponsors of Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst International, respectively, the combined approach to Bathurst certainly requires careful commercial control.

Some of the categories run by ARG may carry super-cheap signs at events hosted by Repco.

According to Repco boss Cameron, his company took a fan-first approach to this bold Bassert project.

“The Australian and New Zealand Repco crew are very excited to bring fans a true celebration of motorsport,” he said.

“We would like to thank the supercar and ARG teams for helping us put the fans first and ensure that world-class events are held in a very challenging year for the sport we love. I think.

“For us, Bassert is more than a race. It’s a symbol of everything we all love about sports and we can’t wait to bring this event to our fans.”

Supercars will need to host four other events between now and Bassert to meet their broadcast contracts with Fox Sports and Seven Network.

Phillip Island The Gold Coast has already been canceled, but the Sydney Motorsports Park doubleheader has long been considered a likely outcome.
